Apple Blossom Art Journal Page













This is the second page based on the pink flowering crab apple tree. It's all ready for writing in, horizontally between the half circles.
Oh, and Jace my spouse-guy got me gerberas. Love that color!
How about some more pink? Head over to "How Sweet the Sound." Beverly is hosting a celebration of inspiring pink. There's even a giveaway at Cottage Farm Villa for some gorgeous goodies.

Pink has never looked so good to me. So vivid and full of life ~ well done!

Shayla said...

Denise, same as me- I had to double check the spelling and I still got it wrong! Can't pronounce them either, but they sure are happy flowers.

Thanks, Caren. Nice to meet you:)

Hello, Lady Jane. Yes, thank goodness for spring. Winter has me feeling frumpy with millions of layers of sweaters. Not much longer :D

Thank you, Denise Elizabeth, Virginia and G. Enjoy your weekends :)

Kathryn, I thought I was too "mature" for pink for a long time. I've been craving it lately. It does seem to give energy.

Jeane said...

Hi Shayla - I really like what you have done here - what a great idea to do your writing down the middle - I love pink!

Jo Horswill said...

You know I have a thing for pink. I really really love it. The inspiration from your gerbera's, is truly reflecting in those pages...just wonderful. Those pencils look good too!

Shayla said...

Thanks for visiting. How nice to meet you CC, Muse, Shelley, Sue, Joy and Robyn.

Hi, Binky. A little song- Fun! :D

Jeane and Jo, (Binky too) I always feel a little sheepish or rebellious when 'pink' enthusiasm hits. Too many years thinking of it as an unempowering color. Still, as artists we get to reinvent the meanings behind colors ;) If you have some pink, I'd be curious to see how you handled it.

bindu said...

That is so beautiful! Also love the picture of the pencil shaving. :)

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, Shayla. I've missed you.

Your photographs are stunning. I love pink gerberas, too. And, your journal is gorgeous.

MiKa Art said...

Tracy said...

Delicious pinks, Shayla...And love the crab apple art! Those pink pencil shavings look as delicate as any flower petals...Have fun with more pink. I took part in Beverly's Pink Saturdays for a while--great fun! Happy week, my friend ((HUGS))

Sriram said...

Hi friend.. Nice and cool post.. Visit my blog and post your comments.. I have added you to my blog roll.. Hope you too will do the same.. Take care... Keep in touch mate!!!

Shayla said...

Bindu, I have to check out how your trip went! Thanks, I'm happy with how the pencil shavings turned out.

Beverly, thanks. Good to 'see' you again. Yes, it's been a long time. I usually paint in golds, but the pink urge builds up after awile.

Mika, oh I know. Much as I love it, winter is too long!

Jane, yes! They do look like petals.

Ro- we need a little enegizing around here with all the whites and blues of winter.

Judy- An arty nerd? Well you couldn't be more welcome here ;)

Sriam- Nice to meet you.
